Tonight we had a special treat.
The market was having a sale for a couple of days only.
Fresh lobster was $3.99 a pound.
We have been watching the prices of them this past season, and $4.99 was about the best deal we could find.
It was still too much for us.
Other than that, they ran $7.99 - $9.99 most of the time.
So needless to say, lobster is rare in our house - last time we had a meal of them was a couple of summers ago.
So we splurged for dinner tonight, and man was it delicious!
We cooked them ourselves instead of having the store do it - the wait was over an hour they were so backed up with orders.
I guess we were not the only ones enjoying them for dinner.
They are a low calorie food - 111 calories for 4 ounces of meat with only .7 grams of fat - that's 1% of a day's worth of fat.
Too bad they are so expensive - they are an all -natural, health food - especially when eaten as I like them - right out of the shell with no butter or sauces.
